Dear Jennifer,
Our prayers are with you and the girls through no doubt one of the hardest times of your lives. Randy was a very special person , he demonstrated how to live life to the fullest. Jackson loved him so dearly because he was like another father and friend to him. He treated Jackson like family and to Jackson ... he was family. He lived a life the way it should be lived, enjoying everyday, loving freely, and making sure those he loved knew it💙. Great Memories are his legacy and the love he shared with those lucky enough to know him.
Sincerest blessings,

Dear Jennifer and family, Jim and I were so shocked to hear of Randy's passing. We have such wonderful memories of the many years Jim and Randy spent at IMW together. Randy was such a good and loving friend to all of our family. We have such great memories of riding horses together when our girls were young. We just wanted to say how much we loved Randy and his mom and aunts. Randy was always so kind and generous to all his friends. We will always cherish the times we shared, especially Jim and the times he shared with Randy. Our love and prayers are with you and your 'girls', all grown ladies now! Love and prayers, Jim and Betsy Stone and Bette Stone Mobley

Randy was one of my favorite people of all time. One of the best I ever had the pleasure to work for. He was in a class by himself. His final post that I saw on Facebook had to do with Old Glory. I made a comment that my flag was flying proudly on a 25 foot pole in my front yard and he said "mine is too." He was proud to be an American and was a great one. I will miss him greatly.

Dearest Jennifer and family
Don and I were so devastated upon hearing the news of Randy’s passing. Please know how much we loved and cared about your family. Randy was always so sweet to me and my dogs. When I met Spen and Ranger I knew he was a dog person for sure!
I hope you’ll continue to be our neighbors on the lake. I look over at your house and see Randy all over in every detail, especially the dock. Don and I are always here if you need anything , please don’t hesitate to ask.
I will miss Randy.
Janice and Don Hamilton.

I met Randy when we were young and we played basketball at the CEA building. I got reacquainted when I was with Milliken Valway plant. I left Milliken in 2000 and spent the next 14 years at Johnston Textiles until a stroke ended my career. Randy was the Man I called to move equipment out of Shawmut Finishing plant to Phenix City plant. He was always truthful to me and that is hard to find today. Rest in Peace my friend your race is run. Harold Swann.

What a wonderful man our Randy was....full of life, laughter and love, The Bob Adams Family is so grateful to Jen for encouraging Randy to find his biological Dad and to Rossell Adams Beckett for informing our Adams Family of this wonderful cousin. Randy had the same spirit and integrity as his Dad, whom we all loved so much, as well.

I have attached a photograph of the last time we were together Novembr 14, 2019. Talking to him over the last 16 months seems even more valuable and I treasure every laugh and opinion we shared. Heaven got another Angel. WAR EAGLE.
